Product Questions and Answers
How to Pick a Place to Weld:
Avoid moisture, dust, oil, steam, rain, sunlight, and corrosive gases.
Set Room Temperature.
Make sure ambient temperature is between 0° C and 40° C.
Allow Air Flow.
Set up at a distance of 12” or more from walls or similar items that restrict airflow.
Check Power Source.
Make sure that the enclosure design of the power source meets the requirements of IP23S as outlines in EN 60529, including that it won’t tip over.
Make sure that the environment that you are in does not have vibrations or anything that would affect your work.
